8. Optimistic approach

Positive attitude towards your child helps you to a great extent in the long run. Children who are exposed to negative behaviour tend to be more aggressive than their parents. So, it becomes important for parents to nurture their child with utmost care.

7. Avoid aiming at perfection

Nobody is perfect in this world. So, you need not worry about being the most perfect parent. In fact, aiming too high can hamper your parenting skills and you may find yourself in a stress situation.

6. Manage your mental health

For being an effective parent, it is very important to take care of your own self. Only then you can manage your child. Depressed parents often find it difficult to perform their responsibilities, and as a result contribute to stress in their children. So, you must take care of your mental health for yourself and for your child.

5. Understand from child’s level

Parents need to understand from a child’s perspective whether something is good or bad for him. Only then you can take a wise decision. This can also motivate your child to think independently and encourage him to take challenges.

4. Set realistic goals

It is always a good idea to set certain goals for your child. However, these targets must be planned after careful analysis so that they are realistic for your child. Keeping too high goals can de-motivate your child for future endeavors. Thus, it is recommended that the goals must be laid after discussing with children.

3. Provide loving atmosphere

Love can change the world. How you can’t expect your own child to change if he is exposed to a supportive and loving environment. Some people think that showing too much love can actually spoil the child. However, if the child is made aware about the right and wrong in a loving way, he tends to understand more.

2. Develop a friendly relationship

Parents should always aim at developing a strong bonding between themselves and the child. You should not impose decisions on your child, rather let him lead. This will boost his self-confidence and motivate him to take challenging tasks.

1. Give independence

Children should be given a bit of independence. You should not expect your child to become what you want him to be. In fact, efforts should be made to encourage them in their decisions. So, you should give them some space of their own to think individually. This approach can help them excel in life.
